Everyone needs a vacation once in a while, even you as the caregiver of your aging parents. In fact, you might need one more than you realize. Your duties and responsibilities can quickly take over your life so that you forget what it is like to be “you.” It is possible to take a few days, a week, or more to invest in yourself, even if you are the primary caregiver for your elderly loved one. It takes a little bit of planning, but you can and should book that hotel and rent a car for some much needed time away.
As more and more families take over the duties of caring for elderly parents or other aging relatives,
caregiver stress and burnout can overcome the best of us. You do not have to live in a constant state of stress, frustration, and even anger. Reach out for respite support from a
